Mark. Pinot Noir 2018
By Christian Eedes, 20 December 2019
The Mark. Pinot Noir 2018 is an own-label wine by Mark le Roux, who is winemaker at Waterford in Stellenbosch. From Elgin grapes, it was matured for 11 months in old oak. On the nose, there’s a not unpleasant touch of reduction before red and black cherry plus a little fynbos. The palate shows good volume of fruit to go with bright acidity as you might expect given its cool-climate origins and quite soft tannins as you might not expect given that there was fermentation on stems. The overall impression savoury rather than sweet, this is a more than respectable effort. Price: R230 a bottle.
CE’s rating: 91/100.
